A place to stretch your brain and get your hands dirty. Many innovative thinkers and doers at this facility. Much can be learned from colleagues and associates. Location is very nice; small town living.

Small Town location

Materials Technologist

Good place for maybe a year or two. Will provide good experience however it is limited. Management treats people with no respect. HR does nothing for employees. They will nickel and dime you on anything and everything. Turn over rate is very high as the salary is garbage. There is no moral and nothing is being to do fix the problem, as mentioned before HR is doing nothing and doesn't seem to care. If you value your mental health avoid at all costs. If you like being treated like garbage and a number this is the place for you.

Pros

Limited good experience

Cons

Everything

Potluck with regard to effective management

A good place to work as long as management does not involve themselves with the day to day running of operations. When management did involve themselves,chaos ensue. Most operations have a very transient staff.

A very valuable and educational experience.

For this position I was also required to travel out to site. The shifts were 12 hours a day, seven days on, seven days off, seven nights on, and seven nights off. I worked in a remote lab at the Suncor site. I was part of a team of three people. I was able to train new employees in the lab. I enjoyed the repetitiveness of the work. All of the laboratory equipment had to be calibrated before any work was done. Samples were brought to the lab by another contractor, I was required to organize and properly label each sample and then perform the required analysis. My work was accurate, efficient, and yielded the highest quality of results. I enjoyed being a part of my team, and work well with others. The hardest part of the job was being away for a week at a time.

Great Place to Start

Days usually started out a bit slow, work was organized on a day to day basis so it took a few minutes to get everything coordinated and started. SGS is a great place to get started, the salary is respectable for a new college/university graduate and the benefits were definitely an asset. The hardest part of my day was trying to organize project testwork as the site as a whole is very unorganized, including middle management and upper management.

Cons

Extra effort and dedication goes unnoticed

Geotech

Worst company ever. Do yourself a favour and apply elsewhere. They lied on my interview with the schedule and steady wage. They will hire you and sit you home for there convenience . Very poor management, runned by high school graduates. Most or all have no education.

Pros

LOA on your resume put an outside province address They won't tell you.

Cons

The whole management and work atmosphere

A work environment where you're constantly walking on broken glass.

This company desperately needs more highly qualified North American Technologists and management to validate experienced personnel.

Pros

salary, nothing else

Cons

too many negative attitudes, zero personal life
